OMG, miss a few days and then it takes hours to catch up!!
Hi everyone, congrats on the af's arriving for those who wanted it to, and my thoughts are with yous for those who didn't want AF to arrive. to all the new faces (names) on here, good luck to those who are having transfers, epu's and those who are PUPO. I so hope we get some more BFP's
I feel like a pin cushion, been injecting gonal f for a week and started orgalutran two days ago, plus the blood tests and ultrasounds. I'm feeling pretty good, other than a few minor side affects, nothing too dramatic. Have my last blood test and ultrasound today, and epu on Monday. I can't believe it has come along so quickly, but I have already set my mind onto being level headed and already accepted it might not work the first, or second or third etc... times, but my little heart is hoping it does work straight away, but trying so hard not to set my self up for major disappointment, while trying to remain optimistic. I feel like I've got two heads.(looks like it too with the biggest pimple I've ever grown, and and few smaller ones to back it up).
I hope you are all well and everything starts/continues going to plan for all of us
Happy birthday Peonies

GStef - huge to you, look after yourself and enjoy your new home. We've put off looking until my DH probation at his new job finishes in December and i CAN'T WAIT until we own a home.
Peonies - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
AFM - STILL waiting for AF. I had some brown spotting over the last 4 days with random cramps, and now nothing - no discolouration at all, no cramps, nada. I'm so unsure this time around because of my cancelled cycle, i don't even know if/when i ovulated. The EPU needs to be before the 15th August, otherwise DH will be at a conference in the Blue Mountains and we'll have to freeze his swimmers. I really want him here for EPU.
I've harnessed all this extra energy i'm getting from the DHEA by starting to run every morning before work - just the treadmill at gym, but i've never been a runner and i'm loving it! I'm getting more pimples too and REALLY oily skin, but i've tried an oil control lotion that seems to counteract the overproduction of sebum and helps stop breakouts - Dermalogica Oil Control. It's not cheap, but i found it for $15 less than the RRP, so i'm happy.

Gstef - So sorry hun, it's a crap feeling even when you 99% expect it. I hope you're enjoying your new home anyway, and can start thinking about the next one soon. xx
Clem - Hope the anxious feelings aren't being too hard on you! You asked about my protocol I think? I'm doing a down reg, starting with Lucrin jabs on CD 22 (Aug 8th) and stimming from CD 3 with Gonal-F 225 (up from 125 last cycle!). Then Pregnyl 10,000 trigger, and progesterone pessaries after a 3 Day transfer (if I get that far this time; if we only have one fertilise again it will probably be a Day 1 transfer again! )
mumtochris - So glad you got it all sorted and got to take a break yesterday. Congrats on being PUPO and good luck for the TWW!
Happy birthday peonies!!
I've heard about the acidic thing when I was madly googling last cycle; I remember reading some chick's forum post where she was saying that her last cycle failed because she drank too much pineapple juice so implantation couldn't happen. I don't know how true it is, but I figure that if it was really that dire then the FNs would include it in their post-transfer instructions. After my last transfer, the only instruction I got was "just try to avoid any heavy lifting". Nothing about not raising body temp or anything. Unfortunately I couldn't even avoid the heavy lifting since DH had left and I still had to organise things for the move, but I really don't think it would have made a difference anyway. I certainly didn't have good feelings about "Timmy" surviving to implantation.
Had a wacky dream last night about IVF. I was in the park across from our apartment building, and I was injecting my Gonal-F (just standing around in the open, without swabs or anything). DH was hanging around nearby, and I was stressing to him because I hadn't been injecting Lucrin before AF, and the clinic was closed so I couldn't get any. Then randomly a syringe appeared in my hand with 10 units of clear stuff in it, so I just shrugged and injected it, telling DH that I'd better make sure I get into the clinic ASAP to pick up some more. I'm 18/19 days away from starting and I'm already having bloody dreams about it.

Sarielle those long reg cycles sound like they would be very exhausting. It's good to be getting into it rather than waiting for months. I really hope that this cycle works out better for you. Haha your cats sound exactly like mine. We are their servants!
I don't know WHAT is wrong with me! Dp wants us to go to a dinner party on sat night with our family who just announced their having a baby (I think it's to celebrate) and I felt bad but I don't don't think I can handle it, these stupid hormones keep making me burst into tears.
I feel really Ungrateful too, I got my bfp but im terrified that by the blood test it will be gone or that the level won't be right. I'm trying my best to stay calm, it's hard though. This whole bloody process is hard!
